FC Emmen vs PSV Eindhoven Prediction
FC Emmen failed to bounce back to winning ways last week after RKC Waalwijk did just enough to hold the hosts to a 1-1 tie on the road. The home side were in line to pick up the win in that latter matchup but had their hearts broken by a late goal from Sylla Sow, in the dying minutes of stoppage time.
At the moment, the hosts are sitting thirteenth on the ladder, and are just two points shy of falling into the relegation zone as well.
Meanwhile, things have not been going according to plan for the 2018/19 Eredivisie runners-up. Their last clash on the road saw them thrashed by Sporting with a 4-0 scorecard. Prior to that fixture, the visitors managed no more than a narrow 2-1 win over Heerenveen.
It is also worth mentioning that PSV have tasted success just once in their last eight games in all competitions. The visitors have not been faring well in their previous outings either, and are without a win in their last three trips on the road in the top flight.
Be that as it may, FC Emmen have registered a win against a top-five team just once so far at home. Given the evident difference in stature between the two teams and the fact that PSV Eindhoven are unbeaten in their last two clashes with this foe as well, FC Emmen are the underdogs to salvage even a point in this one.
Furthermore, disappointingly PSV have conceded two goals or more in each of their last three domestic outings. On the other hand, FC Emmen have been consistent in finding the back of the net, especially on home soil. They have scored ten goals from their last four matchups here alone.
Taking into account their previous h2h meeting here also witnessed both teams contribute to the scorecard, count on neither side to make it out of the ninety minutes with a clean sheet intact come Sunday.
